The Hilton brand is back in the Lion City, with Hilton Singapore Orchard rolling out the red carpet for travellers. With over 1,000 rooms, the property is also now Hilton’s largest hotel in Asia Pacific.
Effectively replacing the now-closed Hilton Singapore, it joins the city’s Conrad Centennial and Hilton Garden Inn locations to bring choice for Hilton Honors members at all ends of the market.
Hilton Singapore Orchard is a fantastic showcase of our flagship brand and places us in a strong position to usher in a new era of travel. Together with our partners at OUE Limited, we are confident that the hotel will be in a leading position to cater to the travel demand that we anticipate will come rapidly as global economies and travel networks reconnect.– Alan Watts, President Asia Pacific at Hilton Hotels & Resorts, 24 February 2022
Hilton Singapore Orchard: first impressions
As the name suggests, Hilton Singapore Orchard resides at the heart of Orchard Road. Offering a direct connection to Mandarin Gallery, luxury shopping is just a short stroll away. So too are medical centres: handy if you need a pre-flight test to depart the country.
Making space for precisely 1,080 rooms and suites, the hotel’s lobby adopts an L-shape to assist with speedy arrivals and departures. There’s also 2,400 square metres of event space, for those planning anything from a large function to a simple roundtable meeting.
Staying at Hilton Singapore Orchard
Rooms at Hilton Singapore Orchard blend history with a modern upscale feel. Drawing on a base palette of dark browns, blacks and greys, pops of colour add vibrance to each space.
Many of the rooms offer city views – and of course, there’s an Executive Floor.
As with the Hilton Singapore hotel it replaces, guests in Executive-level rooms enjoy access to the Executive Lounge. Those looking for even more space will find upgraded choices such as a King Premium Suite, or the King Presidential Suite.
An on-site pool and gym round out the experience, with Hilton Digital Key also supported. That’s your ticket to opening doors around the hotel using your smartphone, if you’d rather ditch the usual plastic key.
Dining at Hilton Singapore Orchard
With five venues across the hotel, you’re spoiled for culinary choices at Hilton Singapore Orchard.
At the higher end, Osteria Mozza focuses on rustic Italian cuisine under the design of chef Nancy Silverton. There’s also Shisen Hanten by Chen Kentaro: a two-Michelin-starred restaurant that heroes Szechwan and Chinese dishes.
For all-day dining, look to Estate Restaurant. Adopting a residential feel, it’s where Hilton Honors Gold and Diamond members can enjoy complimentary daily breakfast.
But that’s not all. For simple local bites, head to Chatterbox. Or stop past Ginger.Lily for coffee, cocktails or afternoon tea.
Points and benefits for Hilton Honors members
As you’d expect, Hilton Singapore Orchard participates in the Hilton Honors program. Beyond daily breakfast for Gold and Diamond cardholders, members of every tier enjoy free standard WiFi when booking direct.
A favourite perk for Diamond members is also Executive Lounge access. That’s available with every stay, regardless of the room type booked.
Hilton Honors Gold cardholders may also qualify for the Executive Lounge if upgraded to a room on the Executive Floor. Of course, booking an Executive Room is another way to guarantee this privilege.
As one of the largest hospitality companies in the world, Hilton is renowned for its strong brand recognition, global distribution network, and successful loyalty programme. (This) will provide our property with a competitive advantage and enhance its positioning in the market. We are confident Hilton Singapore Orchard will be a leading lifestyle destination for locals and travellers alike.– Brian Riady, Deputy Chief Executive Officer and Executive Director at OUE Limited, 24 February 2022
To mark its opening, there’s a special offer for travellers who book direct by 30 June 2022.
Enjoy daily breakfast for two, 25% off other eligible food and beverage charges, premium WiFi, early check-in and late check-out (both where available). It’s capped off with 1,000 bonus Hilton Honors points per night, on top of your usual haul.
